I have reconverted the mpeg2 file to a lower bit rate. It is now 1.7gb in size with the PAL aspect ratio. All the other entries for this film should be deleted. They are not the full film. I am sorry for the trouble but the directions for the uploads are confusing at first. I have other films that I am sure are PD but will call the US Copyright Office to confirm.

These films include: 'God Gave Him A Dog aka The Biscuit Eater' (1940), 'So Long Lettie' with Charlotte Greenwood (1929), 'The Common Law' (1931) with Constance Bennett, 'Black Fury' (1935) with Paul Muni, 'Bitter Sweet' (1940) with Jeanette McDonald, 'The Emperor's Candlesticks' (1937) with William Powell and Robert Young, 'The Maverick Queen' (1956) with Barbara Stanwyck, The Bachelor Father (1931) with Marion Davies.

There are tons of others that are not B Movies and the IMDB asks if you own the Rights to add a poster. That leads me to believe these have fallen into the Public Domain but I will check with the Copyright Office.

I am now waiting for the server to allow me to upload the smaller .mpeg2 file.
